After 24 years, Widespread Panic remain one of America s best live
bands, and most successful touring acts. Aside from their legendary
live shows, they continue to raise the bar in their genre through their
songwriting, and Dirty Side Down is a prime example. Band members
John Bell (vocals/guitar), John Hermann (keyboards/vocals), Jimmy
Herring (lead guitar), Todd Nance (drums/vocals), Domingo Ortiz (percussion) and Dave Schools (bass/vocals) combine their efforts by writing, or co-writing, 10 of the album s 12 tracks. Songs, such as the dark, multi-layered opener Saint Ex , the boogie blues of Jaded Tourist or the laid back Southern nature of When You Coming Home showcase Widespread Panic s dynamic range as songwriters and musicians.

This record combines all the elements of the band into an harmonious whole. JB growls and yelps, Dave supplies a solid bottom foundation for every song, Jimmy has obviously embraced the sound and enhanced it and everyone just does their usual outstanding job of adding to the whole.
Great new studio versions of standards Clinic Cynic and North and they finally put the St. Louis jam on a record. John Kean's production is outstanding and his pedal steel adds a nice voice on several cuts.
I've just listened to it the first time and it's excellent. I knew after watching the Wanee sets that this record would be another great one and I was right. IMHO I saw the two best rock bands on the planet those nights in the Allman Brothers and Panic.
this is a perfect album, not a bad song on any of the 4 sides, and I think this is the best new album of 2010. The vinyl version is pristine, and well pressed.
AIt's a solid album that is probably their best since Till the Medicine Takes. Definitely their best effort yet on vinyl.

I saw Widespread Panic on Austin City Limits; they were great live! Many songs in the set were from their last CD "Dirty Side Down." The band is strong in so many ways. Read morePublished on April 10, 2013 by David Lane

This was my first purchase of a Widespread Panic CD. Actually, it was the mp3 download version, but for $5.00, I thought, what the hey, I'll take a chance. Read morePublished on January 25, 2011 by Baberufus
